I'm trying to automate the task of creating a mobileconfig file with a client certificate in it.


I understand that this is some kind of base64 encoding, but I don't get what they're encoding.

My PFX files are protected with a password (Although I tried to create a PFX without the password, and the base64 version of it differs from the .mobileconfig from iPCU version of it).


I already saw Alginald99 tip in:

That tip didn't work for me. When I convert my PFX file to base64, the encoded string is nothing like the string in the .mobileconfig I created by iPCU.


Alginald99 - If you're still hang here - please help!
